Welcome to Class 5

 

This page has useful information about the day to day running of Class 5 and about what we get up to in our busy, exciting classroom. 

 

We work alongside Miss Wilkinson, our teaching partner. 

 

Our Spring term topic is Bingham: a Local Study. We will be developing our mapwork skills by learning how to use grid references and directions on OS maps. The children will learn about the location, origins and development of Bingham using historical maps and aerial photographs. Class 5 will visit Bingham to collect data to answer their geographical inquiry questions. They will write a report and use data handling software to present their findings. Finally, we will stage a class debate to consider possible future developments in Bingham.

 

Mrs Green will continue to read the Boy at the Back of the Class by Onjali Q. Rauf.

 

Our class book this term is ‘Bloom: The Surprising Seeds of Sorrel Fallowfield’ by Katherine Rundell. It will aid writing opportunities such as diary writing, narrative writing, newspaper report writing, TV interview script, viewpoint writing, information fact file, instructional writing and author letter writing. It will also make the children think about and appreciate how lucky we are to have so many green spaces near us to explore and to think about the impact of climate change. In English children will study the book ‘Bloom: The Surprising Seeds of Sorrel Fallowfield’ by Katherine Rundell.

In Science, the children will describe the differences in the life cycles of a mammal, an amphibian, an insect and a bird. They will describe the life process of reproduction in some plants and animals and describe the changes as humans develop to old age.

Useful information:

 

  • PE: Our PE lessons are on Monday  afternoons.  Children may come to school in P.E kit which should include appropriate clothing and footwear for both indoor and outdoor activities and the weather that day as most P.E lessons will take place whatever the weather.   Please make sure that all items of clothing are named.

 

  • Homework: Reading, spellings and times tables form part of weekly homework and any additional homework will be sent home, with an accompanying explanation letter.

 

  • Spellings will be set on a Monday and tested the following Monday. 10 new spellings will be sent home every Monday to be learned for the following Monday. Children should know how to spell the words and be able to use them in a sentence. This is very important and will also be tested. Spelling Frame will be used as a way to practise their weekly spelling rules at home.

 

  • Times tables will be set on a Friday and tested the following Friday.

 

  • Reading diaries are now found in the children's Personal Organisers - we would like the children to read at least three times a week and to see the planner signed at least three times a week by an adult please.

 

  • Outdoor Learning: A large part of our recovery curriculum this September will be spend time learning outdoors, as we enjoy using the new recovery garden and large grounds we are fortunate to have as a school. Therefore please can you ensure that your child has a suitable waterproof coat every day in school. We would also appreciate it if you can provide your child with a named pair of wellington boots which they can leave in the outdoor shoe box. This will enable us to provide opportunities to take their learning outside. Children can also bring in indoor shoes to wear inside to keep our take-care school looking clean and tidy as well as enjoying some home comforts.
